Airings…voices of our youth is a dance/theatre piece created by Kuntz and Company that explores the pressures young people face in the formative years of Middle and High School. The power of Airings lies in the true stories of these young people expressing their thoughts and their feelings in their words. Ideas explored in Airings include gender, sexuality, bullying, forgiveness, friendship, love, and hope. This performance offers insight into the lives of young people and may be particularly helpful for future and current teachers, health and helping professionals, parents, and youth themselves. Airings was created in partnership with staff from the Bellingham and Mount Baker School Districts, faculty from WWU's Psychology Department, and more than twenty teenagers from our community.
In the Fall of 2016 Airings enjoyed sold out performances at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center as well as performances in several Whatcom County Schools. This special WWU performance will include light refreshments (FREE FOOD!) as well as both pre and post performance events and is supported by Prevention and Wellness Services, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Woodring College of Education, the College of Fine and Performing Arts, the Counseling Center, Fairhaven College, and the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.
This special performance of Airings is made possible because of generous contributions from The Chuckanut Health Foundation, The Community Food Co-Op, The Whatcom Family and Community Network, The Whatcom Community Foundation, Whatcom Educational Credit Union, The College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Woodring College of Education and numerous generous individuals.
